Your guide to choosing the best cooling system

With summer temperatures sneaking up, cooling systems can provide much needed relief to residential, commercial and industrial spaces. Cooling systems are not one size fit all, and vary depending upon a space’s size, building type and requirements. The perfect cooling system can provide efficient temperature control all year round for your home or work, and make seasonal changes more comfortable. 

Decide Your Needs

The best cooling system for you depends on your space, budget and needs. With air conditioning units ranging in power, style and functions, it is important to establish what your cooling conditions are this summer. 

Unit Features

Air-conditioning units are available in various models, installation styles and power to suit your specific cooling needs. 

Cooling only units are the most popular type for a hot climate, however reverse-cycle units, which both heat and cool spaces, can provide temperature management all year round. These units can be installed through a split system, a multi-split system and ceiling duct, depending on the building type and budget. 

It is crucial to select a unit with a wattage to suitably power the size of your space. Using a unit too powerful for the space’s size can make the target temperature hard to maintain and risk dehumidification. Whereas using a unit insufficiently powered for the space can require excessive use and cause the unit to deplete quicker. Haines’ Master Electricians have the experience to help you pick the perfect cooling system to maximise efficiency and comfort. 


Split System Air-Conditioning: 

Split system cooling systems have been designed for conditioning compact spaces. With individual units mounted on the wall, split systems’ compressors are installed discreetly outside the home. These units allow only selected areas to be conditioned and more economical than other units, 

Multi-Split System Air-Conditioning: 

Multi-split systems are suitable for up to five rooms and allow for each room’s temperature to be controlled individually. Similar to split system air-conditioning, a multi-split system require an outdoor compressor to pass air and are mounted to the interior wall.


Commercial spaces often require a custom cooling system service to condition spaces ranging from single-split, multi-split, ceiling duct or a combination of all. Haines’ Master Electricians have extensive experience in designing cooling systems for large and complex commercial spaces including offices, stores, warehousing, schools and service centres.
